Napoleon Solo was formed in the summer of 1984 by eight youngsters living in Copenhagen playing their first gig that year. The unique blend of Sixties-influenced soul, R&B, Jamaican ska and British Two-Tone proved to be a great success from the very beginning. Napoleon Solo has always been known to deliver a lively performance with a fresh attitude. Always sharply dressed.
The band visited Hamburg for the first time in 1985 supporting the British band Making Time - this concert was to be the first of many performances in Germany. In 1988 Napoleon Solo went to England to record the bands first EP ”How To Steal The World”. The EP was produced by the legendary Buster Bloodwessel of Bad Manners and released on Unicorn Records. At the time of the release of the EP Napoleon Solo went back to England to join the Blue Beat Explosion Tour with Bad Manners. The band played seven concerts around the UK. Recorded during this tour, Napoleon Solo appeared on the live-album ”Live in London” with the song ”Drive me Wild”. In an article in the British magazine NME, Napoleon Solo was chosen to be among the 10 best ska-bands in the world.
In 1989 Napoleon Solo released their first album ”Shot!”, which was published by Vielklang/Pork Pie in Germany and by Bluebeat Records in the UK. Once again the band toured both Germany and England. The following year, the band went back to Germany, with a changed lineup, and played seven sweaty concerts from Hamburg to Münich. The band broke up in 1992 but was reunited in 1996 and played with different lineups until 1999. In March 2009 Napoleon Solo was reunited with the original lineup for the first time in 10 years.
The album Shot was re-released in 2011 with bonus- and livetracks on the the label VME. 2011 was also the year that the band performed the song 'We Are Copenhagen' on the album FCK CD Vol. III. A tribute to the local football team FC København (Copenhagen). Napoleon Solo supported The Specials at their concert in VEGA, Copenhagen in 2011.
Ska got soul!
